Harlequins director of rugby Conor O'Shea has urged British & Irish Lions selectors to pick Danny Care for this summer's tour of Australia.

The scrum-half scored a hat-trick on Saturday to help Quins book a spot in the Aviva Premiership playoffs with a 42-26 win at Worcester Warriors.

"Danny is an absolute magician on the rugby field as he is a magnificent player," O'Shea told Sky Sports News. "The Lions must take him; he will be brilliant on the hard pitches in Australia."

Care's three tries on Saturday saw the England international take his tally for the season to nine.
